Action Alert
Take Action Protect American Jobs -- Stop Amnesty!

April 30, 2013

Your Senators are home for recess.  We need you to tell them to say NO to the Gang of 8’s Amnesty bill!

This group of 8 out-of-touch Amnesty-advocating Senators claim that America is facing a “labor shortage,” but as the 20 million unemployed Americans can tell you, the real problem facing our economy is a jobs shortage.

The least-educated Americans are suffering worst of all. A recent study from the Center for Immigration Studies notes that unemployment is close to 20% nationwide for Americans with no more than a high school education.  Interestingly, the states represented by Senators who are part of the “Gang of 8” coalition working on an Amnesty bill (Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, New York and South Carolina) have the highest levels of unemployment, all over 20%.

As Senator Jeff Sessions noted, low-income American’s wages have been falling since 2000 and legalizing 11 million illegal immigrants now, with an estimated 33 million over the next ten years, will continue to pull down working Americans’ standard of living.

Defending lower income workers, Senator Sessions declared:

“The public interest is to figure out how we can deal with the crisis we face, how we can have a lawful system that serves the national interest without hammering the average low-income worker, the African-American and Hispanic worker that’s here.  It’s logical that if you bring in a massive supply of low-wage workers, you’re going to pull the workers down.

Sessions went on to note that many of the low-income workers, whose wages will be lowered as a result of the amnesty bill, are immigrants who came to the country legally.  Congress should be looking out for them!

Take Action

We need you to call and visit your Senators in their district offices while they are home, and tell them to protect American jobs and say NO to the Gang of 8! 

Haven’t we learned a lesson from ObamaCare that backroom deals, bad faith and political payoffs to special interests do not equal true reform — regardless of how nice a name legislators give a bill?

Tell your Senators that you demand real economic reform and that you expect them to say no to another 1,000-plus page bill that only benefits the parties writing it behind closed doors.

For more information, please visit EagleForum.org and StopAmnesty.me.

Also, don’t forget to sign the petition to let your legislators know that not all people of faith support Amnesty!
